It’s Day 8 and more ratings GOLD, GOLD, GOLD to Channel 9. London Live (Evening: 1st – 1,750,000; Early Evening: 2nd – 1,569,000) continue to blitz the field with naught else coming close. New Tricks (6th – 825,000) does well in competition, but that’s about it in the non-News, non-Olympic programming that does. Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (13th – 483,000) is the highest rating non-News program of Ch10 and one of only two shows in the Top 20 for the network, leaving the network languishing in fourth overall of the night.
